The 1920’s were generally a time of prosperity between the First World War and the Great Depression, and one of the most iconic style trends of the period involved jazz music, dances and flapper fashion. This crochet pattern is for a hat of that era — the Cloche — so will you crochet a cloche?
The pattern was created by Olivia over at Hopeful Honey (that’s her in the photo above).
For this DIY crochet project, you will need:
- crochet hook (6mm)
- yarn (12ply bulky yarn)
- needle (tapestry / wool)
The pattern will make an adult sized hat.
The procedure starts with a slip knot and three chains. The pattern includes mostly half doubles and slips, and will eventually be 103 half double crochets.
Then the flower — the rosette — starts with a slip know as well and 49 chains. This part of the pattern uses singles and doubles as well.
The flower is formed by laying down a strip of crochet, which will form the petals, and sewing the flower together using another piece of yarn, then sewing it onto the hat and fastening off.
